You know I've been experiencing some of this type of anti capitalist media
from France for awhile now. My favorie example had to do with an exhibit of
Soviet era art work that was displayed both in Paris and New York. The
article in the Times talked about the subtle ways in which the state
sponsored artists protested Soviet Russia in the details of the paintings.
Another article form a French newspaper a friend living in the UK sent me (I
don't know which paper, the article was clipped rather severly and so may be
one of the specifically social Paris papers) never mentioned the protests in
the paintings but talked about the wonderful art that the Former Soviet
Union had created with its state sponsored art programs. Fantasy has
traditionally not found a friend in socialist states where the focus seems
almost totally on socio economics. It dosen't do well in facist states
either for the same reason. If your trying to sell fantasy, Monarchies and
Republics are your best bet. Historically speaking. I cite America, The
British Empire, the Roman Republic, and the Achean League.
